21 Teachings on Happiness ​

  1. We all desire to be happy but we are constantly failing to recognize we are immature to achieve it.
  2. Longing for happiness is like starving. However, as easy it is to have poor food choices as easy it is to burn our soul.
  3. Nobody deserves to be unhappy but this is what we all know since we were born into this. The One who came to teach was killed because we were unable to think of actually leaving our comfort zone.
  4. How many times have we crucified the Messiah out of ignorance? Those who say they have never done it don’t know what they are talking about.
  5. Preaching about happiness is teaching about something that no one has ever had the chance to fully understand. Even God cannot be completely happy up until one person remains in the realm of ignorance and pain.
  6. There is no such a thing as individual joy. God would have no idea what you are talking about if you asked him about it.
  7. There is the question of sin. But our Heavenly Parent has never understood the differences out of the original realm of heart. For Him, everything else is relative and temporary – no matter how we see this.
  8. Living on Earth and trying to succeed only here is like watching a cooking show. You’ll never get the taste of the real food and you’ll never have the chance to discover your own unique ways to co-create if you just accept what others do for themselves in their lives.
  9. People always want to be happy but they don’t know they can’t. Unless they start to think to be happy together with others, based on the patterns God created in the Nature, they will always end up wanting to be happy but never truly be.
  10. True joy and happiness is not mesmerizing, it is not like a drug, it is nothing like a purple mist: it’s our natural state of being we have never experienced.
  11. To be happy you need to experience who you really are meant to be and what it actually means in the everyday life: you are meant to be the child of God.
  12. To be happy you need to grow.
  13. Happiness is an active emotion. It requires ceaseless efforts to live for the sake of others for a greater purpose.
  14. If you can not be happy, God can not be happy either.
  15. God’s only joy during the Creation was to think of you being happy once and living together in evolving harmony.
  16. You can’t give happiness and you can’t make others happy either. You can create an action to what others can respond so a constant flow of give and take actions will generate energy for existence and growing – that what we can call happiness and joy in its true sense.
  17. If you want to be happy for your own sake, you’ll never be able to do it.
  18. Thinking of others, how to help them, how to support them even beyond your everyday reach is the starting point of true happiness.
  19. Happiness is a result of actions. It starts with care, compassion, humbleness and dedication.
  20. On the road towards absolute happiness there is no ‘me’.
  21. Since God, our Heavenly Parent has created everything out of love, you will be happy for eternity. It’s up to you and your thoughts and actions when this will start.

Happiness doesn’t dwell in just one place but shines out to all people

Happiness doesn’t dwell in just one place but shines out to all people. Glory implies prosperity and happiness for everyone, like a light shining out on a new morning where all nature is in harmony and rejoicing together. When the birds on the trees and the animals have been shivering all night, how do they feel when they finally see the dawn breaking? Even though there was heavy snow, as soon as they see the morning light their joy is abundant. All of nature awakes from the darkness and rejoices over that shining light, celebrating the greatness of the morning.

 

New Morning of Glory
Reverend Sun Myung Moon
January 22, 1978

What if you are not “fancy” enough?

Has it ever happened to you that you started to develop an unusual feeling of being neglected by your friends all of a sudden?

When you check your calls and it is plain obvious, although you’ve made the calls, and you haven’t really received any or too many, especially from those who matter to you and up until that you thought you matter to them, too?

Do you remember for the excuses when you tried to explain to yourself why and how probably, possibly, surely, definitely they just hadn’t had the time, again but you are still important to them?

Well, I’m sure, you also remember the moment of truth, admitting these are only excuses to avoid and accept the realization, this relationship, friendship, connection is not as meaningful and valuable for them as for you. That’s a painful one, always. And somehow, it doesn’t want to go away…

Of course, if you walk the path to help and guide people for the greater good, towards God, our Heavenly Parent, than you can have an extended viewpoint on this and it can provide some comfort -. with the understanding, God has been lonely, too, however, you are building Heaven if you keep the good and right attitude…

After so many years, there is one truth which reoccurs all the time for me: we do matter, ceaselessly to our Heavenly Father, our Parent, God. For Him it is not an extended relationship, a correspondence course, it is His bone marrow and we are in it whenever we walk the path of light, truth, care and active love. Interestingly enough, for Him it is less important how successful or great we are. For Him our heart, our mindset, our soul matter, this way He can heal our wounds and body and can share the abundant joy.

Have you ever thought how great you are?

You are unique. Nobody has ever existed anything like you before and will never be. Just you can be you and that makes you special.

Of course, to live up, to grow and mature to reach our full potential is a path with ups and downs. Yet, we are never alone.

You are never alone.

 

God has been calling you, all the time…

God to His Child

I won’t be able to tell you

How much I was in love

With each and every thoughts

Even before you came to this world

 

I was the proudest parent

Who made your bed

Safe and perfect

I couldn’t help but to prepare everything ahead

 

I was longing for the day

When you would be born

And I was enjoying the moments

Of waiting with daydreams

 

I couldn’t count the time

Still I can’t

How long it took

For you to come

 

And then there was the moment

When you first inhaled

The soft and rich air

Created for your breath

 

I will never forget

How much you loved to be tickled

Your beautiful eyes

As you came to know the magical Nature

 

I’m still living partly in those times

It helps me in hard days

When there is only the hope left

To make this world better

 

I won’t be able to tell you

How deep is the love I feel

Because it is endless

Because you are far away

 

I wish we were one

Once again

12 Days with God – Day Twelve

Join me for 12 days to spend more time with God, our Heavenly Parent.

Day Twelve – Paths of Love

Once there was a God who could not help but love and He formed a whole new world to share His love. During the process of Creation He completely invested Himself into it. He became in everything, caring, lovingly. He longed for being loved, too. He had the greatest hope and He did not use the word trust up until it was lost. Betrayed, abandoned and torn apart He became. Yet He has not given up. Although, He had every reason to quit and start again, He has not altered the principles upon He created ever since. So many times, way too many times He was sure the hope was just ahead. And all these times He was betrayed again, again and again. The excruciating pain He has endured has not changed His Absolute Love. Whenever He felt powerless and helpless, waiting for His lost children to recognize their own part of responsibility He could always find the light of hope and nurture it up until it shone again throughout the night in the desert, the desert of bitterness.

He has never given up on any of us. Even when we give up, He stands there and waits, hoping we change. He can see the possibility in us even when we are in doubts, He can envision our best in times when we are unable to see beyond our inabilities.

As He had to grow in love we all need to expand our hearts and discover all the realms of children love, siblings love, conjugal love and parental love – discover and conquer. Become a true, genuine, original owner. This way to find Him and create, complete the everlasting relationship we have always meant to.

Twelve days with God.

Twelve ways to love.

One day can be like a thousand years, a thousand years can be like one day.

In love. In Absolute Love.

Anything is possible.

Together.

With You, Father!

 

Thank you, for teaching me!

 

 

Your son,

12 Days with God – Day Eleven

Join me for 12 days to spend more time with God, our Heavenly Parent.

This is the eleventh day.

You did not choose me,
no, I chose you;
and I commissioned you
to go out and to bear fruit,
fruit that will last;
and then the Father will give you
anything you ask him in my name.
What I command you
is to love one another.
John 15:16-17

 

This is the day of realization.

Days have melted into one. Frontiers and shadows have diminished. Barriers have become less unpenetrable. My personal limitations have decreased. Now, I only find hard to use the right words to share the heart of joy, the mind of purpose with You, Father, with You, who is here now.

When I started this path, I did have the ideas and concepts how and what to do. How narrow understanding it was trying to fit Your ideas and concepts into my thought boxes… I’m smiling on it now, and I know, You are smiling, too: growth, maturity – fruits of Your effort and heart are harvested, as You have been loving silently but with full of Your strength. The only way how we, humans could survive our mournful history is the care, mindset, attitude, ceaseless willingness You have been pouring, Your Blessings on each and every one of us. This is how I am alive, this is how I am healed, this is how I can find new strength and keep going to do better after the failures I make. You have never focused on the flaws in us, You have never pointed a finger on us, You have never excluded us from Your life. It was us, it was me who couldn’t help himself. By now, it is over, You have raised me up, You have exalted me…

All we think of love is mostly a relative, self-confined presumption we eagerly tend to reason and boost about our reasonings and proofs, achievements. This is not who You are, this is not the way to live with You, this is not the life of righteousness, this is not the good foundation of love.

You are absolute.

Your are not our concept, You are not our idea. You can not be bended to fit into the frames of our convenient notions. Instead of looking for one part of You, we ought to perceive You completely, through the Nature, the original Creation. How thoughtfully, profoundly it was shaped! How completely You have invested Yourself into it – for us! For me, too. And for my children, too.

This it the way with everything then: immersing fully into the creation of our life for others, recreating ourselves this way, gaining new life, experiencing the heart and mind of the abundant, utmost love. This is the only way to live.This is the secret of living forever. It has been hidden in plain sight.

I realize it now.

I will apply it for everything, for every relationship in life. My wife, my children, friends and disciples, people in the world, the creation – through this I can give You something, the very thing You have been giving to me, to us: Absolute Love.

 

Thank You, Father, Thank You!

Your son,

12 Days with God – Day Ten

Join me for 12 days to spend more time with God, our Heavenly Parent.

This was the tenth day.

God created man in the image of himself,
in the image of God he created him,
male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27

This was the day of creation.

Father, You have created us to be co-creators. All the abilities we were given are meant for completing this life with an ever-growing heart and a mutual relationship with You.

A real family, this is what You have always longed for, this is what You have always been working for. This desire and idea has helped You to get through all the tribulations and grief, pain and sorrow You had to endure – because You have never given up on us, despite the uncountable amount of ways of hurt we have been giving to You.

You have created us to be co-creators of beauty, kindness, sharing and love. As the greatest example, You always responds with beauty, kindness, sharing and love towards each and everything. We do have this ability in ourselves, since You are our Father!

Forgetting own desires and plans, immersing into the life of the most beloved ones, time and space receive more meaning and value. This is how I found You today, in the time and space of being sincere, devoted, kind, enjoying beauty and giving it back, sharing heart and everything, giving and living love even without thinking of it. We were so alive with the children, we accomplished a lot, together, and the tears of happiness were flowing in my heart when I saw their unity. That made me proud, knowing they are on the right way towards You, and You only. They already have something, what I needed to learn sometimes: You are real for them, alive. Your pure son, Jesus, is their favourite to learn from, and all the teachings from You are in their everyday actions with each other, and with others, too.

If I have a request, it is to be able to be with them longer, to guide them on this pyhsical world, and experiencing together the ideal among each other – this way, co-creating Heaven on Earth.I know, it is not selfish to long for, we all want to help the people in the world out of love, sharing kindness and beauty – they are our siblings, even if we haven’t met yet, even if they are far, noone is going to Heaven, nor can’t be happy up until each and every one of us will have the bond in heart with You.

Thank You, Father, for being alive, thank You for the responsibility and trust! Please, feel the joy of co-creation I have had today!

Thank You!

Your son,

Have You Noticed That You Are Amazing?

Here is the thing: everybody wants to be happy, live a joyful life, create and work for the greater good and be appreciated accordingly.
Nobody likes being prejudged based on anything, nobody likes being shut out, nobody likes being alone, nobody likes being misused.
Yet, we all have vast experiences about these and there are more to them.
How can we change it?

Here is the thing: we are all meant to excel in whatever we plan for others and the world around us. Living in a world full of communication devices we seem to be loosing in our efficiency regarding the ability of real meaning and understanding each other. It is like the Tower of Babylon – so many ways to miss the point.
However, and this is a great however: you can excel in any art, the inevitable tool to comprehend other nations, science, faith, people and I can assure you, yourself during the way.

You are a Winner,
Not a Quitter,
You are Awesome,
No matter what you say,
You are Amazing,
Nobody is, was or will be like you
You are Unique,
Not only Special,
But simply: Fantastic!

Be persevering and all your efforts will bring fruition for you and your beloved ones and the whole world will be a greater place.

You’ve recreated me and made me whole

I thought, I’d lost you
But You’d found me
The swamp of my life
Emerged to a blooming meadow
Where You are the Creator
And I’m Your co-creator
Where we experience
Love and fun together
Where the highs and lows
Are equally shared

 
It was only a night
What I’d asked for
It was only a day
What I’d hoped for
Yet You gave me
A whole new life
With meaning and purpose
Love and care
Abundant joy
Truth and peacefulness
You’ve recreated me
And made me whole

 
You’ve recreated me
And made me whole

 

Thank you!
